Hotel encourages guests to try steal a Banksy off the wall
We’ve all heard the story of how Banksy smuggled one of his own artworks into the MOMA. Now Melbourne’s Cullen Hotel is reversing the challenge, inviting guests to try and steal a signed Banksy original off their walls. Yup, ‘Stay the Night, Steal The Art’. If you succeed without getting caught, it’s yours to keep ($15,000 value). But if you get nabbed, it goes back on the wall for the next guest to have a crack. The hotel recommends against using ‘an angle grinder, but you will need plenty of guile and cunning’. Indeed!
